I am Alive

Hey Everyone!

I am sorry I have been absent from the blog from a couple of months, life just got away from me, and this past summer was crazy busy.

Beings that fall is here, I am hopefully going to be back to this blog on a more regular basis.

Since I was sick in July, and having a busy summer, clean eating has fallen off the band wagon. for some reason I quit making smoothies, and clean eating kind of went by the way side. I started eating more gluten and drinking coffee on occasion here recently, and today I intentionally had dairy. Lets just say that having dairy was a very bad idea. Having an increased amount of gluten and consuming coffee have also been not so great ideas.

Now that I know how good I can feel when I am on board with clean eating, versus the past few months where I haven’t been eating right, and put stuff that I shouldn’t have, in my body.

One of my goals over the next few months is to wean my body back down to a limited about of processed carbs (like breads and pastas), and refined sugar. I am hoping that I can get back on to a lot more quinoa, rice, oats, and other whole grains. I am also wanting to consume more nuts, fruits and vegetables. I am by no means planning on becoming Paleo, vegetarian or vegan, that has never been my goal, but rather eat a lot healthier. I know I keep saying that but it is totally true.

I also seriously need to join a gym or something, getting up at 5:30 am, then working a 10 hour day was insane, and now that it doesn’t get light until after 7 am, and is getting dark at 6:30 pm (we are still on Daylight Savings Time at present, mind you), getting outside and exercising really isn’t an option at the moment. I am going to see how things go at work since I got switched projects, and I may go back to working five eight hour days, and start at my normal time, and get off at 4, then if I get a gym membership, then I would hit the gym after getting off of work. We will see. It is so hard making time to work out, on top of work and everything else. When I was in college I could just schedule classes into my school day, and then I would just show up for class, and it would not be above and beyond my normal school day.

I have been knitting since I was 10. I love to read, write, knit, listen to music, Travel, and learn about history, especially when it comes to how women got things done around the home up to the mid-1960's.
